PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I often hear, "Help! I don't remember!"
Therefore, I give this three-page document for students to review and take notes on literary elements (setting, point of view, plot, characterization, conflict, foreshadowing, symbol, theme, irony) to help them remember these terms so they can use them to analyze stories.

Some pictures are included on the handouts, and I like to give them as many memory tools as I can when we review these terms as a class. For example, most cannot tell me what a dynamic character is; but when I relate it to actual dynamite, I ask them what would happen if I set off a stick of dynamite in the classroom. It would certainly CHANGE the looks of the room. So I explain that a dynamic character is one who CHANGES. For foreshadowing, I tell a story of seeing my kids' shadows which gave me the clue that they were sneaking around after bedtime. My kids were shocked when I reprimanded them because they couldn't figure out how I knew they were sneaking around since I didn't actually see or hear them; their SHADOWS gave me the clue! I use 1st, 2nd, and 3rd person pronouns to help students understand point of view, and I have those notes on the teacher key.

I hope these worksheets make your review of literary elements fun and memorable!
